To Julie with love...

These are not my colors.
This is not my fabric.
It's hard to work with OPF sometimes.
I know, you've heard me say, it's such a treat to work with OPF.
But.

She's one of my peeps.  She is a great help in the booth at beyond the reef.
She is a fabulous quilter, designer, she has a great 'style' of her own too.
So.
I just gotta go with this project - in I go...

I cut the fabric - well most of it.
I start sewing.
I have to cut more fabric.
.....daaaang.....
These blocks are looking pretty great!
(the colors, you guys - not the blocks, well, the blocks are coming along too)
But, daang, Julie!!!
These are coming together!!!
So I decide to keep sewing.

Then I think - wait.
Hmmmmm.


Now I'm not sayin' anything here - not promoting the use of any distraction while using heavy machinery...


But I just couldn't stop sewing!!!
I did a partial punchdrunklovewithpiecedcenterblock
just because at this point
I'm lovin' this project - I'm lovin' the tulapink fabrics
I'm thinking,
Yep.
this Julie knows her stuff!!

Thanks for letting me out of my box.
Out of my comfort zone.
Again.

Natalie.
